Quick and Easy Pumpkin Cheese Bread

Makes: 2 loafs

Description: Create a seasonal favorite that is quick and easy to whip up and uses some of the best flavors of the fall. Quick and easy pumpkin cheese bread can be whipped up in a few minutes, bakes in an hour and will be eaten before you know it.

2 cup  Sugar
8 ounces  Cream cheese
15 ounces  Canned pumpkin puree
2 Tsp  Baking Soda
1 Tsp  Salt
1 Tsp  Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp  Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp  Ground Cloves
1 C  chopped nuts (optional)
1/2 C  Butter (Softened)
4  Eggs
3 1/2 C  Flour

Instructions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans.
Cream together the sugar, cream cheese and butter. Add the eggs one at a time and then add the pumpkin. Keep mixing until completely uniform.
In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, baking powder and cloves. Then add this mixture to the moist ingredients, don't over stir.
If you're choosing to use nuts this is when you'll want to fold them into the mixture.
Divide batter into two pans and bake for an hour or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Leave to cool, at least slightly, in pans before removing to a cooling rack.

I made this bread yesterday. The smell from the oven while it was baking was wonderful. It was very moist. I baked mine in glass loaf pans so I set oven temp at 325 deg and baked for a bit longer. You can eat this with or without frosting and it is still great! Thanks Daisy !

I made this yesterday and it came out great! I didn't make the frosting in the interest of saving calories but next time I might do one loaf with the frosting and one without. I may try it with a little more cinnamon as well. I also used almonds (since that's the only nut I had), but would probably be better with walnuts or pecans. This is a great fall recipe that I can definitely see myself making for future Thanksgivings!

Looks delicious. I was thinking the same thing on the icing. I guess you can use any cream cheese frosting. I wish people would label what type of butter. I always use unsalted when baking but I never know for sure. I"m going to try freezing a loaf. 2 is to many for me.
